We have been to Sanibel several times a year for the past several years and what a gem to fall upon. We decided to take our pet this time and could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. They are booked months in advance so if you are planning a trip, make sure you call early to reserve your place.

We are planning on going back for sure within a few months. Great time! We were in need for nothing while we were there! I rated the restaurant and fitness center as average as there is not restaurant there as they provide a full kitchen in your suite, and we did not utilize the fitness center while we were there.... Walked the beach several times per day!

We looked at a lot of places on Sanibel Island for our vacation and we were glad we found Mitchell's Sandcastles. We stayed at Sea Spray, the closest house to the ocean.

Pro's - awesome staff, location, quiet, two pools, free kayaks/bikes, great shelling, saw dolphins everyday, free beach chairs, grill outside our house, porch, price

Con's - cockroaches or something looking just like them in our house (we noticed them on our last night)

We would return to Mitchel's, great little place.

The cabin was wonderful everything is provided . Would suggest a cookie sheet for oven use. All other pots and pans provided the beach was great for shelling I was lucky enough to find a sea horse horse conchs nutmegs and even a small wentletraps . The staff was helpful and they even have backhoes to use in shelling. They had a dishpan at the front porch door to rinse your sandy feet. What a great idea kept the sand down. They even provide charcoal and fluid. Will definitely come back. The beach is as advertised

We spent a long weekend at Mitchell's and it was hard to leave. Shelling was phenomenal. They have two pools, free use of kayaks, bikes, beach toys, chairs and umbrellas. Perfect for us since we flew in from out of state and didn't have all that with us. The house was clean inside, but the windows were filthy. Internet was spotty, and the cable TV was not working on a couple of TV's, and not at all for awhile on the TV in the living room. Cable guy came next day to fix it, but still, the TV situation is not ideal. We are spoiled with HD TV's, and their cable signal in regular definition, and the aspect ratio is off. But, I don't go to the beach to watch TV, right? We saw dolphins playing just off shore our first day there. House is comfortable, and staff friendly. Cottages are old, but kept up fairly well. To get a five "star" rating from me, there has to be better internet access, fast enough and strong enough to stream shows, especially if the TV's don't work. Did I mention the retro feel of the place? It's quiet, it feels like the kind of place my parents would have taken me when I was a kid in the seventies (if they could have afforded it), but with air conditioning and better plumbing. I'm trying to figure out a way to get back again...

Room Tip: We stayed in Breakers, a three bedroom house. Very spacious, and would not hesitate to visit again.

We spent a week there with our two sons and the place is beautiful. Everything is clean, the staff is very helpful and friendly. If you are looking for a relaxing beach holiday it's the place to go. The beach is great, lots of birds and seashells.
